PERG Info | PERG materials | PERG HOMEPAGE | PER on the web | Resources on the web

Why are some students good at learning science, while others are not?
How may we help all students become better science learners?

These are the core questions Our focus is on two classes:

Our objectives in this project are to carry out research in science learning among college-level introductory physics students and to develop new learning environments that can be used in large-lecture college courses. For more information on these topics, follow the links below.
